Institutes, Summits & Workshops

Challenge and enhance your organization’s leadership, governance and employee engagement with other leadership and governance thought-leaders at one of our institutes, summits or workshops.

We regularly host large and individualized institutes, summits and workshops.  Here for example is a link to the Nonprofit Leadership Summit that we hosted in May, 2016 at the Hanover Inn at Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH:
